friend and colleague, care lynn mccarthy. close the gun show loophole. for starters, things that n.r.a. members agree with. let's care as much about real guns as we do about toy gun consumer protection. to start us down the road of making our children safer by treating children's gun safety like their auto safety. all the air bags, anti-drunk driving campaigns, child seats, driver education, careful licensing, it slashed the accident rate but it didn't eliminate them altogether. we can't imagine a world without these protections for our families. let's see if we can imagine a world where our children are safer from gun violence. and then make it happen. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. murphy, for five minutes. mr. murphy: madam speaker, i rise today with a heavy heart, to honor petty officer nicholas , a person who sacrificed his life in the most honorable of ways, to protect and save the life of another human being. his life was a testament to the core values of the united states navy, honor, courage and commitme
is sketchy. in fact, it is was the n.r.a. and other gun rights movement have scared congress into passing rules into keeping data. we do know for sure. some estimates put it at 40% of guns by unlicensed sellers. but nobody really knows. we know the number of background checks performed. we don't know the rest. guest: we don't have a registry of gun owners and, in fact, the rules are opposite. the rules are so strict that the f.b.i. can't keep data on its gun checks more than 24 hours. they have to purge their data every day and that includes data of people who have been prohibited from buying guns. there is other perverse things in the law. if you are on the terrorist watch list and prohibited from flying you are not in the instant check system, you are not prohibited from buying a gun unless you follow in one of those categories. host: if the f.b.i. has to purge within 24 hours, could somebody buy a gun every three days, two three days or so? are there limits on how many guns you can buyin a year? guest: there is not a federal limit. you can buy a dozen guns or two dozen guns, you can bu
afraid of the nra, if they were to stand up and do what's right for the american public, we would all be a lot better off. host: mayor michael bloomberg yesterday. our question for you is whether gun laws should change? the wall street journal as the deadline-- -- headline -- now allison from trenton on our independent line. caller: 1 question to be answered is whether or not anybody can put forth a good reason for people to have these guns. give me an example of a time when it has come in handy, or it's been a great thing, where it has worked to the benefit of someone or group of people. why are they needed? if someone can give a positive answer about that, then maybe i would think that the assault weapons are needed. otherwise, i cannot see reason for it. i'm against gun ownership in terms of having assault weapons. if you have to have one to protect yourself and home, that's one thing. but rifles that are used for war to have as an everyday weapon makes no sense. host: on twitter -- and here's the new york times -- let's hear from paul in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, a republican. cal
